WATERPROOF DISPLAY HOUSINGS FIT ALL MAJOR BRANDS
NavPod’s new line of high-quality waterproof housings for marine electronics, PowerPods with RAM Mounts,
can be installed on a sloping dash or vertical bulkhead.
PowerPods are better than bracket mounting. Very sturdy and secure, yet clean and attractive, these mounts provide protection for fishfinder/chartplotters from the harshest of wet boating conditions. PowerPods give the convenience of easily
reaching and controlling a multifunction display while providing added security with protection from theft. NavPods’ unique
stainless steel tamperproof fasteners and the RAM Mounts’ Pin-Lock security system are combined to allow boaters to leave
electronics on board the boat without worry. All NavPods are manufactured with a double gasket system that provides an
excellent watertight seal.
RAM Mounts are designed with a patented rubber ball and socket system that allows precise positioning of your fishfinder
or chartplotter. NavPods are available in pre-cut models compatible with all 7, 9, 10 and 12 inch LCD displays from all major marine electronics manufacturers.
SPORT NEW CAPABILITIES
The ECHOMAP Plus series is Garmin’s next-gen-eration of chartplotters and sonar combination
units designed for both saltwater and inland anglers
and boaters. Building on the success of its predecessor series, ECHOMAP CHIRP, the new ECHOMAP
Plus features powerful sonar capabilities, preloaded
charts and mapping, and built-in Wi-Fi for access to
the new Garmin ActiveCaptain marine app, which
creates a simple yet powerful connection to a compatible mobile device.
Available in a range of display sizes, the Plus
series features a bright, sunlight-readable 4, 6, 7 or
9 inch display. The 6 inch units are new to the
ECHOMAP series and are larger with more pixels
and easier to read than previous 5 inch models. The
ECHOMAP Plus series also offers the convenience of
a new keyed-assist touchscreen on the 7 and 9 inch
For crystal-clear scanning of fish and structure,
the ECHOMAP Plus offers built-in CHIRP traditional
sonar and CHIRP ClearVü and SideVü scanning
sonar. All 7 and 9 inch Plus units provide support for
Garmin Panoptix sonar transducers, so anglers can
see real-time sonar imagery at video-like speed.
The ECHOMAP Plus units feature built-in
BlueChart g2 charts, and US or Canada LakeVü HD
maps. U.S. LakeVü is an extensive database of more
than 17,000 inland lakes, reservoirs and rivers.
Canada LakeVü features more than 13,500 lakes.

NMEA MULTIPLEXER ACCOMMODATES MULTIPLE CONVERSIONS
ShipModul’s MiniPlex- 3 Series of NMEA multiplexers combines data from multiple navigation
instruments. Through an advanced filtering and routing system, this data can be sent to other
navigation instruments and to computers, tablets and smartphones.
A bi-directional Sea Talk1 interface enables conversion between Sea Talk1 data and NMEA
0183 sentences. This conversion works both ways, allowing the MiniPlex- 3 to replace Raymarine's
Sea Talk-NMEA bridge (E85001).
MiniPlex- 3 models with an NMEA 2000® interface (-N2K suffix) connect directly to an NMEA
2000 backbone and convert between NMEA 2000 PGN's, NMEA 0183 sentences and Sea Talk1
datagrams in all directions.
All data is available on one or more computer interfaces in NMEA 0183 format. NMEA 2000
PGN's and Sea Talk datagrams for which no NMEA 0183 equivalent exist can be converted to special NMEA 0183 sentences, allowing software developers to support processing of raw NMEA
2000 and Sea Talk data.
Each port on a MiniPlex- 3 multiplexer is galvanically isolated
from the internal electronics and from every other port.
This guarantees that no ground loops will be created
when adding a MiniPlex- 3 to a navigation network.
It also ensures a trouble-free connection to any
type of NMEA 0183 port of any device. The MiniPlex- 3 multiplexers are all functionally identical but
differ in type and number of computer interfaces.
